No Bake Peanut Butter Bars {Gluten Free}

by Laura

A while back, I had a little get together. Some of the guests who would be attending had gluten allergies. I wanted to make a treat I was sure that they could eat. As a result, I ended up settling on these no bake peanut butter bars. They were a hit with all of my guests. I mean how can you loose with creamy peanut butter, crispy cereal, and a drizzle of chocolate!

Thanks for the recipe! My daughter is Celiac, so any GF recipes are welcome! You may want to note that in order for the recipe to be GF, you MUST use GF Rice Krispies. Regular Rice Krispies have malt in them which contain gluten. But thankfully they do make gluten free Rice Krispies!
